When a tooth has suffered significant trauma, decay, or infection, our doctors may recommend you undergo a root canal in Claremore. Root canal therapy is a commonly performed procedure to restore the health and function of a tooth by removing the tooth’s pulp. Underneath the hard-outer layers of a tooth is a soft inner layer known as the pulp. The pulp contains nerves, which branch off into the root canals of a tooth. When the pulp becomes damaged, infected, or the pulp is exposed, it needs to be removed or the tooth may eventually require extraction.


Due to past methods used to perform root canals, many people are fearful or hesitant when they hear they need root canal therapy in Claremore. However, several advancements in dentistry have been made over the years. Now, a root canal is generally no worse than a traditional dental filling.

Typically, we try to use a root canal as a last resort when other treatments are no longer an option. There are certain situations when we will recommend the procedure, such as if a tooth has significant decay or has suffered severe trauma. In addition, when a tooth becomes infected, a root canal will likely be recommended. If the tooth is not treated promptly, the painful and uncomfortable symptoms will continue while the damage to the tooth intensifies.


After performing an initial consultation and taking digital images of the tooth, our doctors will create a comprehensive treatment plan. Using a safe and comfortable procedure, the health, appearance and function of the tooth will be restored.

The first phase of treatment involves the use a local anesthesia to minimize discomfort. Then, specialized dental tools are used to remove the damaged areas of the tooth and the pulp. The inner chambers of the tooth are cleaned out and the tooth is disinfected to prevent infection. A special, biocompatible material is then used to seal the tooth shut. This prevents bacteria from developing in the tooth.

Finally, our doctors will place a custom-made dental crown over the tooth. The dental crown acts as a protective barrier while also restoring the function and appearance of the tooth. Now, you can get a restoration that looks like a natural tooth for a flawless repair. In addition, with CEREC technology, you will get your permanent crown the same day. You will not need a temporary crown.

After your procedure, you may feel some light soreness or inflammation in the area. You can use over-the-counter pain relievers to treat the discomfort. Within a couple of days, all discomfort will cease and you will become use to the dental crown.

So we found this dentistry and thought we check it out. The staff are very nice, they give you a tour and informative of the dentists and the services they provide. My daughter felt comfortable and noticed the differences from our past dentist. So if she’s all in, I’m going to use the services as well. They were able to get me an initial assessment immediately following my daughters cleaning. I would recommend this dentistry to anyone who is searching for a more detailed and skilled dentistry!

      Each visit with Flawless Smile is so pleasant. The front office staffers all greet me with a friendly “Hello” and smile. I have never waited more than 5 or 10 minutes to get taken back to the dental area by another smiling staff member. I am a different person because of my treatment at Flawless Smile. Different meaning I’m no longer depressed because I don’t have to hide my smile every minute of the day. It’s amazing how being able to smile changes every aspect of my life.

        I have dentures that are screwed in and I was having to go to either Kansas City or Oklahoma City from Tulsa to get them worked on fallstona was able to put these in and keep them clean for me and it's a lot closer than a two or four hour drive. Everyone I've met at the staff and the doctor is great I would recommend this especially if you're looking for dentures.

          I really felt that all employees/staff were more than good to me. Made me feel like family almost and really seemed to care. They definitely wanted me to get the best service possible and I'm excited to go back again. My next appointment will be getting 7 teeth pulled and instead of feeling nervous as I usually do, I feel completely ready to get it done and have total faith in the dentist there to do good work. I know I'm in good hands!
